A summary of the contents of our TEFL course (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) is found below.
TEFL I will provide you with an overview of the different methodologies and approaches to teaching and learning developed in Europe and abroad in the past and the present. We will focus in the basics of foreign language teaching: classroom organization, resources and materials, language teaching skills, and strategies in the language classroom. The TEFL I ends with the analysis of a course unit and its different sections.
TEFL II will provide you with a detailed review of the elements that build the teaching and learning context. We will study how the English language works and how to address the specifics of the student’s learning process. We will also be dealing with the different skills needed in the field of foreign language teaching today, and more specifically, we will study techniques of classroom organization and the educators’ teaching skills within this area.
In TEFL III, you will develop abilities and skills to adapt different approaches of language teaching to the individual learning needs of students. You will acquire critical evaluation skills and will be able to develop and apply different teaching materials and resources. In addition, you will be trained in the importance of learning to learn and of research as a tool for education enhancement. Finally, we will focus in the development of reflective practice and self-evaluation, and in the development of Techniques in Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL).
